Meet Sarahi Zacatelco of Mujeres Del Siglo XXI in New Haven

Today we’d like to introduce you to Sarahi Zacatelco.

Sarah, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
I’ve been working as an artist for over ten years. I have had many art shows, and my work displayed in restaurants in Connecticut, New York and Boston. When Coronavirus began, I had to renovate my thinking about arts “roll” in my community and how I would endure as an entrepreneur woman. I started helping other women in similar situations to be successful, to put food on their table, and to provide for themselves and their families in a meaningful way through my art projects. As an artist, I have to be a small business-minded. I used my experience to lift other women. And together, we were able to do bigger things.

We’d love to hear more about your work.
I’m an Artists, Its an Arts business, most people know me for my Day of the Dead Puppets; for my Social distance art benches, and my catrina costumes. I’m most proud of my resilience, adaptability to adapt and renovate myself & my art. I think it’s not what sets me apart from others. It’s my strength to bring people together. That takes a different type of strength.

Any shoutouts? Who else deserves credit in this story – who has played a meaningful role?
I have my support teams. We work together as a family, three boys Joel, Isriel, and Eamon.
